President Trump invited the two soldiers he pardoned to be his special guests at a closed-door fundraiser in Florida on Saturday.
Trump pardoned Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance and Maj. Mathew Golsteyn for their involvement in separate war crimes along with Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, whose controversial pardon resulted in the firing of Navy Secretary Richard Spencer.
Lorance and Golsteyn joined the president on Saturday evening during the fundraiser, which racked up $3.5 million for the Florida Republican Party. The massive event featured 1,000 guests who were all required to turn in their phones ahead of Trump’s address. No press were allowed into
